Please, is this down pastern or an effect of the body weight (he's 5 and half months old) on the forelimbs. I ask because sometimes you see it, sometimes you don't depending on how he stands.
Attached below are pictures of him without his weight on each of the limbs (forelimbs)
Pls, CO owners, does this happen (maybe because of the growth rate) or this guy needs therapy?

Simply place him on vitamins. Also the morning sun helps as it is rich in vitamin K. It is also best to keep him on uneven surfaces as flat and very leveled grounds could cause the bad feet too. Personally I use "Forever" vitamin C. It is a human drug but has been working for me though. Hope that helps

Thanks chief, he's been on vitamins and calcium supplements since I picked him up. Will try your suggestions too.

Thanks to everyone who responded to the inquiry. Here's our boy with his pasterns up. Thanks to opinions from everyone, he was able to overcome the syndrome.

How did we do it:
exposure to early morning sunshine
Feeding adequate calcium without reducing protein intake
Giving vitamin C (white) supplements
Giving daily multivitamin supplements
Rigorous and simple exercises.

In short, we combined every opinion.
Here's our boy doing fine at 8 months, 6 days.
